Bananas: The Simple Facts!

This week we are going bananas! There are so many facts about bananas; some we already knew and some were new to us.   After doing a little online research, we came up with a few that piqued our interest.

Did you know that ounce for ounce bananas are one of the healthier food sources available? Not only are they are high in potassium, vitamin B6 and fiber, but they contain quite a few other nutrients as well. Low in fat and calories makes them the perfect choice for a snack. Eat them alone or add them to recipes for some healthy eating!

According to the Chiquita Brand, LLC website, bananas are considered to be an athlete’s friend since the combination of carbohydrates, simple sugars and fiber provide the much needed energy for physical activity. So, don’t hesitate to choose them for a pre or post workout snack or even adding one to your healthy protein shake recipe. In addition, the FDA stated that along with a healthy lifestyle and diet, eating bananas may lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes and may decrease the risk of getting certain types of cancer. Seems like a win, win situation to us!

So, enjoy and go bananas with us! No guilt necessary!
